US President Biden warned Chinese President Xi Jinping about supporting Russia’s invasion of Ukraine during a video call between the two leaders today, the White House says.
Biden “described the implications and consequences if China provides material support to Russia as it conducts brutal attacks against Ukrainian cities and civilians,” the White House says.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki says the administration worries China will step in on Russia’s side.
“We have that concern. The president detailed what the implications and consequences would be if China provides material support to Russia,” Psaki says. “That is something we’ll be watching and the world will be watching.”
